Vick

I know Vick is a pariah as far as FO is concerned but he seems to be possibly in line for the starting job at Philadelphia as far as all the pundits are concerned and he has a good matchup with Detroit this week and he has so many weapons at his disposal plus he gets rushing yardage. My questions are:
1) Is Vick a good pickup for me? My QB's are: McNabb, Cutler, Garrard. May eventually winnow that down to 2 as injuries mount.
2) Is Vick at Detroit a better start than McNabb vs Houston?

I am starting Vick over McNabb. I like Philly's offense better than Washington's and McNabb didn't show me anything last weekend. I like my matchups at other positions this week though and feel like I have a bit of security in case Vick fails. Last week I won with Matt Ryan at QB. I'm willing to take the risk mainly because of Detroit.

I think you're right. Vick will have a better floor, just because he'll scramble for 50+ yards.

Yeah pretty much. As long as he throws a touchdown and passes for 125 yds I'd bet his running yards will be enough. Seems likely he'll hit those baseline numbers against Detroit.
